    That's strange. I got the same exact message recently, but it was an email, not a PSN message. Really doesn't seem like a chain letter either because it doesn't say "send this to all your friends for free money".

    Its probably just an automated message reminding you that you have unused funds on your account, probably like 3 cents if you're like me.

    The biggest question is; have you got any funds in your wallet?

    The last time I checked Sony's ToS it stated that Sony will only contact you through the e-mail associated with your account. Unless they changed something I don't think that's official.

    Whats it do when you click on minis? Does it go to PSN store? Cause that looks pretty official since I get PSN messages all the time about when preorders, dlc, games, etc come out and the only way to redeem them is by clicking on the attachment.

    Only thing that looks wrong compared to my official PSN messages. Is the [PSN] on your SS needs to have a lil more space in between the [P and N]. Not clumped together like it shows.

    True for your account information. PSN store related, it's a different story.

    I got this email too and thought it was weird because the money in my wallet has only been there for like a month and a half and its only a dollar and some change. Then when I saw the sign in to check balance part I thought that was weird too so I just deleted it. It does seem legit though but IDK...

    Dear jdizzle0420,

    This is just a friendly reminder that you have funds in your PSN wallet that have not been used for six months or more.

    To view your account balance, please sign-in to account management by clicking here.

    Your funds can be used for games, add-ons, movies, music and more, available in PlayStationŽStore.

    It's legit. My friend got a message a few months ago for it. He hasn't bought anything in about 7 months.. so

    Since everyone that got it has money in their wallet, I don't really see how it's fake. Specially since it's not soliciting anything other than there are funds in your wallet. Not to mention it'd be extremely hard to copy that "user name" since it's the official PSN announcement name. Now like I said, only thing that makes it suspicious to me is the lack of gap between the [P and N]

    So chances are, it's 100% legit unless we have a new hacker.

    Why don't you contact Sony's customer service, Ariel? I'm sure they'll be able to tell you if it's official or not, then we'll know for sure.

    It's legit, I gotten it a couple of times. It is just a reminder notice that you have funds you haven't spent yet. Every once in a while I leave enough for a movie rental in the balance and don't spend all of it they remind you.
